Columbia NEW: SECURITY AND LOCK INSTALLATION
Call upon our nationally renowned locksmiths when you need new locks installed for your home or business!
Most people want to ensure that their homes and businesses are properly secured, but they don't look at the most obvious security issue when it comes to said locations: are the locks on the home or business out of date? Are they old, or broken? Most importantly, who has the keys? Many older locks have keys that have been copied dozens of times, thus creating a security risk. Making sure that you have the best security possible means it's time to start exploring new locks and security systems for your home or business. With a new and professionally installed security system, you can feel safe in your home as well as confident that your business interests are secure. Security is often one of the most overlooked aspects of daily life, so is that really the smartest way to protect your home or business? Instead, take a moment to consider a few things.
WHY INSTALL NEW LOCKS NOW?
For both residences and businesses, in general, security is inherited, meaning that all the security weaknesses are also inherited with the next tenant of a location. In general you don't know how many people have access to your keys, and ultimately how many people have access to your home or business right now. There's a good possibility that an ex-spouse of a previous tenant or disgruntled former employee of a previous business has access to your location right now. And that means security risks that you don't need. In fact there are a number of potential problem spots:
- Divorce, death, or a new tenant
- Moving to a new home
- If your vehicle was broken into and a copy of the keys were taken
- Your keys are lost or stolen
- After a break-in that damages your lock
- When your previous employee 'forgets' to return the office keys
- When you have to relocate to a new office
- A roommate moved out but retained possession of the keys
- When you need to upgrade your security system
- As part of your home or office renovations
- When your locks are simply old, outdated or damaged
When it's time to upgrade your residential or business security, call us-- we've got you covered when it comes to lock installation and upgrade services.
LOCK REPLACEMENT SERVICES
We Specialize in Both Residential and Business Lock Installations
The first step to updating your locks is to call our offices so that we can do an initial security inspection. We take into account variables such as style, possible weak points in security, and finally, the individual budget for the work. Although we work so competitively that our prices are the lowest that you can find anywhere in the country, we also have a number of different options for people and businesses who don't have the latest advances in security planned out in their budget. Often a good solid deadbolt and quality modern alarm system will do the job just fine.
The reality is that most people aren't fully prepared to deal with the implications of their security. It's a nice idea, but most folks have locks that haven't been replaced since they moved in, with hundreds of copies of their keys out in the wild. Is this the kind of security you want? More importantly, is this the kind of security your loved ones deserve? If you agree the answer is no, it's time to call the professionals.
Car Lock Installations and Changes
Our services aren't just limited to homes and businesses-- we also install car door and trunk locks through our car lock replacement service. Our expert locksmiths are ready and equipped with all the tools necessary, 24 hours a day when your security needs it most when a vehicle needs rekeying or new locks. No matter what model or year your car or what security system you need for your vehicle, we specialize in all forms of vehicle security and can get the job done where you are.
WHAT TYPE OF LOCKS DO WE SERVICE?
Industry Standard: The Deadbolt
The long-time standard of personal and business security, the deadbolt lock is familiar to everyone. Most homes and many businesses are equipped with locks that are built into the door and the wall. Of course, newer technologies help to offer even more security such as digital locks, but the deadbolt for at least some time remains the most common lock technologies (though we are equipped to set up even the latest technological advances in security.) We service a variety of brands of locks, including:
- Master Lock

The Next Level: The Mortise Deadlocks
A Mortise Deadlock, at first glance, looks like a deadbolt, but it isn't: a Mortise Deadlock is unlockable on both sides with a key, as opposed to one side having a knob. What this means is that this type of lock is precisely the kind of lock you would use when you want to guarantee that only people authorized to do can get in. Therefore, it's most important to make sure that a lock of this type is used in areas where security is paramount and access is by nature limited (this isn't the sort of lock that is used on a bathroom or kitchen; this is more ideal for private areas not meant to normally be seen by many others. We carry the most important brands of Mortise Deadlock, including the following:
Modern Lock Systems: High-Tech Security Solutions
When it's time to get to the next level in residential or business security, it's time to go electronic. Nothing in the world even comes close. You want the best security in the digital age and that means you want to consider some of the systems below, because sometimes a simple deadbolt and basic security system just won't cut it anymore.
Keycard Systems: a keycard system is based around electronic and magnetic locks that can be accessed through the tap of a card, as opposed to the use of a physical key. Besudes being very programmable (meaning room to room security) they are trackable (meaning you know where everyone in the building is) and reprogrammable (so ex-employees can't steal key cards and try to get back in.)
Keypad systems, like keycards, can be used to limit access to certain users. However, a keycard is not even necessary-- all that is needed is a programmed code for the user to get through. (They can also be used in conjunction with keycards for added security.)
Fingerprint and Retina Scans
Fingerprint and Retina Scan Systems: We see them in big offices, and we see them in movies, and now they're here: facial (eye) scans and fingerprints are showing up on phones and other devices: don't your home or your business deserve the same security?
Mobile Phone App Compatible Systems
Mobile Phone App Compatible Systems: Electronic lock systems can often be used with WiFi to not only give the owner an accurate picture of who is where in a house or business but can also alert owners if there is a security breach. Police can usually be called remotely to the scene and then our emergency locksmith service can survey the breach and repair it.
The best part of this is that with the speed with which these new locks developed and advances in technology, prices are continuing to drop and become more in line with the prices of more traditional security systems.
